How to get rid of the 'Set Optimal Settings?' display box

Post by JaJe on Wed 28 Nov - 13:55:56

On some computers when you start the game Call of Duty 4 appears the following message:

Your computer appears to have changed since the last time you ran Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Would you like the game to configure itself optimally for your new hardware?

This is recommended for most people. It will change your system settings but not your controls.

This happens mostly on Windows Vista and Windows 7. After every time I started my game and kept getting this message it became rather aggravating. So I finally figured out to get rid of it.

  1. Go into C:\Program Files\Activision\Call of Duty 4 - Modern Warfare
  2. Open the file localization.txt (make a backup before editing the file!)
  3. Delete the following text:
    WIN_COMPUTER_CHANGE_BODY
    "Your computer appears to have changed since the last time you ran Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare.
    Would you like the game to configure itself optimally for your new hardware?

    This is recommended for most people.
    It will change your system settings but not your controls."



    WIN_COMPUTER_CHANGE_TITLE
    "Set Optimal Settings?"


This will not affect in any way the Punkbuster or personal settings.

Enjoy! Grin
